Thirty something high school English teacher Shannon Parker stops at an auction sale where she notices a vase containing a portrait of her on it. She wins the bid with a ridiculously low price tag due to a mysteriously appearing crack inside the vase. On her way home, Shannon is transported from her vehicle to a luxurious temple where her friend Suzanna calls her Lady. She soon learns that the vase was a portal that her ¿twin¿ the High Priestess of Epona Rhiannon used for them to switch places Suzanna is actually Rhiannon¿s slave Alanna. --- Centaur ClanFintan arrives with his ¿horsies¿ to demand Rhiannon complete the hand-fastening ceremony that would have them married for a year. Shannon goes through the ceremony, but refuses to take any lip (or other body part) from a man built at least down there like a thoroughbred. Instead she treats him and others the same way she taught teenage hormonal maniacs in Oklahoma. As the transplanted Shannon and the shapeshifting centaur fall in love, she tells him who she is while they team up to battle malevolent demonic vampires and prevent the real Rhiannon from returning. --- The first ¿Goddess¿ book contains the enjoyable ingredients that make these mythological romances fun to read because the species of mythos seem genuine and the strong heroine is ready to battle in this case her new society, her beloved, her ¿twin¿, and the vampires using the techniques honed in teaching wars with teenagers. This tale is amusing mostly due to Shannon¿s observations and quips yet it has its¿ serious moments too (for instance the worshipped Goddess learns that teachers are treated with contempt as those who can¿t and paid accordingly). Though the heroine adjusts too easily, fantasy romance fans will cast about seeking the remaining delightful Goddess tales. --- Harriet Klausner

This sexy fantasy was a wonderful read! I don't think I've ever laughed out loud so hard since I read Sweet Potatoe Queens. I don't usually read fantasy, but the goddess aspect of the novel, plus the fact that the herione is an English teacher (as am I), enticed me into picking it up. And, Wow! was I in for a surprise! P.C. Cast has given us a main character all women can relate to. She's funny and sexy without being a Barbie Doll. Her internal dialogue is outstanding -- just what many of us would be thinking if we had been yanked into an alternative world and mistaken for a goddess, betrothed to a handsome centaur, and thrust into the middle of a war with vampire demons. Let me warn you -- the book is HOT! I'd give it an 'R' rating, which I really liked, but it's definitely not for children. When you get this book pour yourself a glass (or two!) of wine and settle back for a wonderful escapism read. You won't be sorry!

PC has taken the time to weave this story into a really great one. There are so many things that can carry your imagination away to a far off place, and she has led her readers into a wonderful place, where even evil still needs to be fought. Shannon Parker was meant to be a beloved of epona!! From her life of teaching to marrying a person she has never met, to living and leading the people. So many details and not enough to read in this book, it keeps you on your toes. There is alot of feeling in this book and it is a great read.

I actually won this book and my high school graduation party, and being that Ms. Cast had once taught at my school I thought that I'd give it a try. It is SOOOOO Good. I can't say enough about it. Everything is planned out so well and it alll just flows together, unlike most books. I really enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to anyone. (My boyfriend couldn't even put it down).

Please buy this book! You will not be disappointed. I do not read science fiction, but this book just caught me and wouldn't let me go! Ms. Cast really knows how to write her characters. I was soooo touched by the love between ClanFintan and Shannon. It made my heart melt! I eagerly wait the next one!!

What a wonderful book! An unexpected gem, with characters that are so authentic, I would swear I could recognize Shannon/Rhea walking down the street (if she should ever happen to leave Partholon, that is). A quick paced plot, with plenty of humor, made this a 'Beauty and the Beast' type of tale that I couldn't put down. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

The nomad in me was satisfied and exhilarated to find a parallel world the destination of the heroine's journey. And the 'lust' part: very real. The main character certainly was lusty, and I found myself craving the pages when I wasn't reading the book. An addition of crafty, satisfying writing mixed to form a wonderful tale. I know many women who would appreciate Goddess By Mistake, and I intend to let them in on this gem.
